Hard non-moveable bump on spine b/t shoulder blades. More painful as day goes on- pressing in nerve? Vertebrae is sticking out? Dr can't see for weeks

Hard non-moveable bump on spine b/t shoulder blades. More painful as day goes on- pressing in nerve? Vertebrae is sticking out? Dr can't see for weeks

Need a bit more info: Lump on the spinous process would not involve nerve. Injury could cause a crushed vertebra and a "hump".TB is rare in the US but that could be a problem, Bone tumors are rare there. A sweat gland (seborrheic) cyst is more common and can be fairly fixed. In any case, a few days-even a week or two-delay should not change your prognosis. No doc for weeks sounds like poor care. See a nurse. ...Read more

Sebaceous Cysts?: If these are sebaceous cysts (sort of like an overgrown pimple), they are not likely to go away unless they are cut out. Sometimes they can be injected with steroids to help them shrink, but the most definitive way is to remove them with an incision. If they don't bother you, it is ok to leave them alone, but if they bother you, see a doctor who can surgically treat them. ...Read more

I have a rash with red little bumps that appear on my shoulder blade about two ago. I don't know what it is or if I should go tgo the hospotal.?

Try OTC ointment: A new rash in that area could be from a number of things. I would start with cleansing the area and applying an otc ointment such as hydrocortisone. If you're having more serious symptoms, that would be a more appropriate indication to go to the emergency room. If it's not that serious and doesn't respond otc ointment, we might try a local urgent care. Best wishes. ...Read more
